-- president obama provides the leadership here. president obama's network, across this country, grassroots individuals are much more powerful than the individual lobby. we need to pass common sense legislation to keep guns out of the hands of criminals and those who shouldn't be carrying a gun. so that's the common sense nature of this. it's not about infringing upon the second amendment. it's about making sure that gun owners are responsible gun owners and we're not giving guns to criminals. the second amendment doesn't apply to regulations on other types of weapons, like weapons of war, assault weapons. so the argument is not going to stand up. we have to make sure the american people know what the argument is. that we need to keep our kids safe. we need to keep our guns out of the hands of criminals. >> what about the president now? i know he was all out and got after it big time. and now he says he's going to give this everything he's got. what does that mean to you? i mean, is he going to go out on the road? is he going to really take the case to the american people really going after
